Monitoring the blood sugar level regularly is of critical importance to any diabetic. Machines in use today need to process and remember information, need separate lancet needles and test strips and are also cumbersome to use. The diabetes monitoring phone delivers smart solutions to these problems. It is a diabetes monitoring product based on the mobile phone system, which makes it simpler to use and get feed back on the basis of the sugar test. It has an integrated lancet and test strip which helps avoid the actual handling of a needle. It is made out of biodegradable material and comes with its charging port, multi touch screen, LED light and works on a Lion battery. The device sends the information to a hospital database which gives feedback thus building a personal profile and record of the patient.
